Wood burning fireplaces heat through a combination of radiation, which warms objects, and convection, which warms the air. Various models are either one or the other.
Radiant wood heaters work by releasing infra-red heat directly from its outer surface onto surrounding objects. As a result, the heat is released quicker and stays lower in the room, as opposed to convection wood heating which offers a more controlled, circulated heat release. Radiant wood heaters are ideal for rooms with higher ceilings or less insulated (or draughty) rooms and large open-plan living spaces as they efficiently heat the immediate living space.
Jarrahdale Heating Midvale offers a choice of two radiant heaters made right here in Perth, Western Australia. These heaters are made to strict Australian standards using locally sourced steel and include a 10-year structural warranty.
